Because of my very limited number of contacts in these social medias, the effect was unnoticeable. I then published the post […]

Making the Scary Monkey project with my son has been a lot of fun so I decided to make another project for the kids. I built an interactive RGB lamp. The lamp has no switch and no dimmer, it’s entirely controlled with radio frequency identification (RFID) tags. The RFID reader is hidden in the lamp […]

My project is a Java client that consumes a SOAP web service (CISCO AXL) through the Axis2 toolkit. I am developing in the […]
